Christmas reveals


Here is one of those secret Christmas things....
a quilt for DD...had to surprise her as she lurks on my blog!
Not bound yet...but I will get it done. Truly!
The top row is folded over the clothesline...
didn't need it to get on the ground as the pic was taken in a break from the rain.
Everything looks so green & fresh...lots of frogs in my garden too.

I got the fabric from Modern Retro Textiles...Heather Ross Far Far Away range,
with some Sue Ross fabric for the sashing...an orange micro dot.
DD loves the Princess & the Pea story...I think the colours of this fabric make it
suitable for a grownup girl's bed!
She likes it. The gauzy fabric was a bit of a challenge though.

Great Quilt,I know what you mean about taking a pic in between showers, we have the same situation here, and the frogs make it hard to have any peaceful sleep, as ours always seem to croak at night.
Have a great new year and hopefully loads of sewing time

I love the quilt and had been thinking of making quilt covers for my girls in the same fabric! Thanks for the mention, Sam Millis, Modern Retro Textiles
